Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas - Official Trailer from WG Film on Vimeo.

Around the globe, there is a massive commercial rush for farmland – the new green gold. One of the most profitable new spots for farming is Ethiopia. Hoping for export revenues, the Ethiopian government leases millions of hectares of allegedly unused land to foreign investors. But the dream of prosperity has a dark side - the most massive forced evictions in modern history, lost livelihoods of small farmers, harsh repression and a vicious spiral of violence. Dead Donkeys Fear No Hyenas investigates foreign land-investments and exposes their impact on people’s lives.
